The Osborn Archive


The Osborn Archive, housed in WGC Library, comprises manuscript and printed material amassed by Osborn throughout his long and active life. As well as documenting in great detail the movement in which he played so central a role, it also contains items reflecting his wider planning, housing, political and personal interests.
There are significant collections on Osborn's early years, on Howard, the early Fabian Society, the histories of Letchworth and WGC and on post war reconstruction. Much of this material is unique. Osborn's own copious writings, his articles, speeches and
massive correspondence with planners throughout the world, also form a substantial part.
A printed catalogue of the Archive is available from the Library priced £5 and it is open to scholars by appointment.
